Aloha Animal Sanctuary is O'ahu's First
501(c)(3) Non-Profit Sanctuary for Farmed Animals
THE SANCTUARY was founded by a team of animal rights activists who recognized there was a need for a sanctuary for farmed animals on O'ahu. Many people have never had the chance to interact with animals like pigs, cows, chickens, or turkeys, although we slaughter and eat them by the billions annually. We want to help people form personal connections with these animals, and see them for the individuals that they are.
Located at the base of the lush Ko'olau Mountain Range in Kahalu'u, Kaneohe, Aloha Animal Sanctuary rests on 2 acres of land. Just a hop and a skip from the ocean, the property enjoys the sea breeze and ample rainfall which keeps temperatures mild and cool for the animals.
Only in operation since January 2019, we are working towards a sustainable expansion of our sanctuary.
There are so many animals that need help and although we cannot help them all, we hope we can influence our visitors to live compassionately towards animals.
We believe all beings deserve the right
to bodily liberty and justice.
To provide sanctuary for neglected, abused, and/or abandoned animals, and to promote compassion towards these animals through public engagement and education.
To create a culture where humans practice compassion and respect for all species, through a sustainable, environmentally-minded, and love-based approach.
Our sanctuary is currently located in Kahalu'u, on the east side of O'ahu, Hawai'i.
The land is owned by a married couple (a lawyer and a doctor) who purchased the land with the intention of building an animal sanctuary. Through our shared vision and love for the animals, our partnership was formed and now we are operating on two acres of their agricultural land.
